The Central Okanagan received two awards at this week’s BC Parks and Recreation Association annual conference in Vancouver.
The Association’s 2018 Award of Merit has been presented to the Regional Parks Service and the Community Recreational Initiatives Society, better known as CRIS.
The award recognizes achievement in the local government or special interest level involving a significant distinct contribution to the enhancement of local recreation and parks. For many years, CRIS volunteers have provided no-cost, barrier-free access for those with physical challenges to our regional parks through programs like Wild Walks, Take a Hike and other activities and events.
